The metaphorical ship which CaptainEek sails in to edit Wikipedia. It appears to be a perfect copy of the USS Chesapeake.

CaptainEek sails the high seas of Wikipedia, hunting for good prose and other booty - such as well sourced articles. They often come across the scourge of the seas: vandalism - yet they know they have nothing to fear when the compass of Wiki is in their hand. They try their best to keep out of edit wars, as ships react poorly to both gunfire and needless reversions. Like Ishmael they too hunt a white whale: the elusive featured article status. They try to keep things clean and ship-shape so that the swabbies don't have to mop the deck so much. When not at the wheel of Wikipedia they make port on the shores of the United States and spend time being a land-lubbing agricultural scientist. The "Captain of the Eeks" think Wikipedia is one of the most spectacular human innovations (or at least that it's pretty darn cool), and strongly believes in the mission "to create a free encyclopedia, in a variety of languages, presenting the sum of all human knowledge."

Welcome, and thanks for your work on Townsend v. Sain! I'm doing a bit of editing on the article at the moment – you've done a great job, particularly for someone so new to Wikipedia. You're right that the article is probably too primary-source heavy at the moment, but there's a lot of potential here. I look forward to working with you on future articles!
